Senior players with poor form should take rest: Miandad
LAHORE: Director-general and batting consultant of Pakistan Cricket Board Javed Miandad said that if senior players are not in good form they should make exit from the team for taking rest.
He said that a performance-based system should be implemented in Pakistan for selection of the team.
Talking with media after giving tips to players of under-16 camp and Test cricketer Salman Butt here at the National Cricket Academy, Miandad said that he is very happy for the responsibility assigned to him and he would perform his duties together with all coaches. He would come forward where his services would be needed.
He said that there is no team favourite in the Champions Trophy.
Miandad said that he considers Pakistan as the best team and they need only some tuning and confidence.
He further said that no player including Shoaib Akhtar was stopped from playing. The player who performs well in ground should be in the team.
Javed Miandad said that if the senior players are not performing well then they should get away from cricket and come back in the team after taking rest so that they can give good performance.
